Five of my favorite links on the topic of genetic arts:

one guys fairly l-systems generator. the download gives more information to how these things work. also has good book recommendations.

http://www.cs.utk.edu/~mclennan/alife.html
A good definition of artifical life. This info is very helpful for creating simulated natural systems.

http://www.webslave.dircon.co.uk/alife/chaos.html
Tons of info about evolution, artificial life, cellular automata, chaos theory. My project pertains to the L-Systems portions and this is a great resource.

http://www.nbb.cornell.edu/neurobio/land/OldStudentProjects/cs490-96to97/sto we/P3D.html
Basic information about l-systems and how to describe natural objects using patterns and a predefined grammar. This uses turtle geometry for creating 3d objects.

A whole lab at MIT dedicated to artificial intelligence. I have a bad feeling they've got nerds burning the midnight oils making weird creatures that will ultimately lead to the destruction of the human race.
